for the key state of ohio is mightily close. the numbers, columbus dispatch, final polls, the president leads governor romney 50-48. statistically that's a sky. nbc news and wall street journal poll shows the president leading by 6 points. that's just inside the margin of error. of course, no republican has won the presidency without winning ohio's electoral votes and the columbus dispatch, this marks an 83rd time that the presidential candidates visited ohio this year. and steve brown is live in columbus. the president is a proponent of early voting. >> as of friday 1.6 million oh ohioans one in five registered voters in the buckeye state. early voting continued throughout weekend and that number is this going to grow and in franklin county which includes the city of columbus, folks trying to early vote today were in for a pretty long wait. >> i wanted to try to beat the lines, but we couldn't, but we're in another line here. >> you didn't expect this. no, i didn't. pretty crazy. >> i've been waiting for probably about 45 minutes so not too long. >> reporter: and paper absentee ballots are
of the badgering done in person or over the air waves impacted early voting. here in columbus, the line stretched out of the door and in the parking lot and people waited in line for two hours to cast a ballot. some of the churches loaded up people on buss and drove them to early voting location. and spokesman said this is resulting in a big surge for president obama. and that is why they fought so hard to keep early voting open in the final weekend leading up to the election here in ohio. associated press reported republicans and democrats, democrats lead by six percent. we can show you video of the absentee ballots and republican response to that. spokesman said they anticipated all along that democrats would lead with early voting, however, the lead is not significant as it was in the last election. they say viewer democrats showed up for early vote more republicans showed up. both sides are predicting a narrow margin of victory and lawyered up have observers here in the polling locations. and every vote counts and every vote will be scrutinized. >> steve: thank you for the live report. everyb
heavily for mitt romney. what we need to watch on election night is columbus, where franklin county is, because we've been seeing the romney campaign campaign very heavily in central ohio in and around columbus. we're going to see president obama go there on friday. that's the area that could make up the difference come election night. >> okay. james peterson, last thought here. there is a pattern now of real dishonesty on the part of the romney campaign ads. they're out there saying that romney's been accused of outlawing birth control, contraception. nobody's ever accused him of that. they've said that he's not supporting the right of women to have it covered in their health plans. why are they putting out these desperate ads like jeep's going to china and women are under attack for buying birth control pills? i mean, it's an absurdity. who would be so uninformed as to believe these ads? >> well, chris, that's a different question. there are such a thing as uninformed voters and that's fine, that's part of our process. but this is the silly season. you know this, chris. you've studie
, thanks for that update. now to battleground ohio, kelly o'donnell live in columbus. the polls close at 7:30 in ohio and it could be a long night, indeed, if it's as close as it has been predicted. >> well, andrea, there's certainly a lot of enthusiasm here. there are four precincts that are voting at this one location and we've seen at different times today, some long lines, especially sort of the before work crowd. it tapered off a bit, but people seemed to be able to get in and get out. we've seen lots of families coming, kids getting to see the process up close with moms and dads. a lot of enthusiasm. more broadly, we're hearing from both campaigns about their relative confidence about what's happening in ohio. the obama team has stressed to us they have had a structure in place with lots of offices making it easy for volunteers to work the phones and help out. we've met some of those today who want to maximize voter turnout. we're hearing from team romney in ohio that they believe that there is a strong voter turnout in communities that they say could benefit the governor. in more su
. there was gridlock as bad as we have ever seen. look at a live shot of columbus circle south of central park on the west side. central park still remained closed. it has been like this all day. one of the reasons is that crane is still dangling over 57th street and that is creating the massive traffic jam around the circle. jason joins me from the queensboro bridge. i talked to you earlier today and most people have given up trying to get a vehicle they were walking. >> oh, yeah, it has been a frustrating day for thousands of commuters making their way across the bridge. you can look through the traffic people still making their way at this hour even at 8:00. it is the only way for a lot of these people to get home. we can show you the line still here, people waiting sometimes three or four hours for a bus to show up. you can see now they are waiting patiently, but i want to show you video that we shot within the past 40 minutes or so where you can see people lost their patience. people were trying to get onto one of the buss that pulled up. there was some yelling going back and forth and te
the statehouse in columbus. you know, ohio started voting early, five weeks ago and 1,787,000 people took advantage of that opportunity, the highest number in the state's history. we noticed today as well that a lot of people are casting provisional ballots, they go to people whose address doesn't match their registration or who requested an absentee ballot from the state but never got around to sending it back in. those provisional ballots could provide a dilemma because they need to be validated and they are not counted until november 17 so a close race could keep us waiting around for several days after the election and that could provide a window of opportunity for lawyers who are descending on this state, scott, and may see this race go into the courts. >> pelley: and ohio could very well tip the balance for one candidate or the other tonight, dean. thank you very much. virginia, the birthplace of eight american presidents, has 13 electoral votes. the polls close in the commonwealth of virginia at the top of the hour and wyatt andrews is there tonight. wyatt? >> reporter: scott, this
